Abstract

This report describes the process of setting up a 3D representation of the Digital Bleek and Lloyd collection (lloydbleekcollection.cs.uct.ac.za) in Second Life (SL). The building, scripting and evaluation of the SL exhibit are discussed. The report concludes that SL is a good platform for this kind of cultural representation. At a university level it could be used to showcase and share researchers’ work.
